Acerca de

Language Landscape is a not-for-profit organisation based in London, UK which aims to raise awareness of language diversity. We run a website and outreach programme to bring together language communities online, to help people to better understand the languages spoken around them and to help to raise the profile of minority and endangered languages. Our website enables anyone with an internet connection to add language recordings to a world map. The recordings are mapped where they were made in order to reflect the geographical spread of languages. Other users can access the recordings by browsing or searching the map. In order to encourage more people to contribute to the project, we have initiated outreach work with several communities and completed a pilot educational programme with a school in east London. The programme provided students with practical training in recording techniques and helped them to learn about issues such as multilingualism and language endangerment, using the website as a starting point for discussion and activities.
